Nathan Rogowski and Pierce Arner are web accessibility experts at Instructure and will be sharing their knowledge on the why and what of a11y.
Nathan Rogowski has been a dedicated Accessibility QA Engineer with Instructure for the last three years and has worked with the accessibility community for most of his life. He's had the opportunity to give presentations to user groups in Salt Lake City and Chicago and most of his recent work has been focused on accessibility education and auditing new products to ensure they are usable by everyone. When not leading trainings about the nuances of accessibility testing or preaching the good word of inclusive design, he's usually trying to convince his peers to close their eyes while they work.
Pierce Arner first started working with accessibility at a technical support level and has now been an Accessibility QA Engineer for over two years. In addition to performing regular manual accessibility audits of software before release, he has given a number of internal presentations and trainings on accessibility. He focuses his efforts most heavily on streamlining processes by implementing shift left testing wherever possible – involving himself in design & development to ensure more people see that accounting for accessibility earlier has far-reaching benefits.
